Team Edward or Team Jacob? This has grown to become one of life’s biggest questions. Before you make your choice, however, let us give you a little background of everyone’s favourite werewolf.

Lautner flaunted a successful career at a very young age, but it wasn’t in acting. Instead, this athletic guy earned world recognition before his thirteenth birthday for his karate skills. In fact, he had his black belt before he was eleven. It is because of this that we aren’t surprised Lautner is also good at football, baseball, and hip-hop dancing. Is there anything he isn’t good at?

Giving acting a go at an early age, Lautner made several small appearances on shows such as My Wife and Kids, the Bernie Mac Show, and Summerland. Then bigger and better things came along. There is a good chance you haven’t seen young Lautner in his breakout role as Sharkboy in Sharkboy and Lavagirl…missed it? Don’t worry you’re not alone. A few short years later, as you well know, he scored the privilege of playing Jacob Black in Twilight. Despite the rather unbecoming wig he had to wear for the film, we were all disappointed when New Moon director Chris Weitz contemplated replacing him with someone a bit older looking. To the relief and viewing pleasure of hundreds of girls, Lautner gained 30 pounds of muscle between films to ensure he kept his spot on the cast list. Currently involved in the production of Eclipse, the next instalment in the Twilight series, Lautner is also one of the many stars in the soon to be released flick Valentine’s Day. Additionally, he will star in the upcoming film version of the cartoon Max Steel.

While his new found success has gained him many adoring fans, he remains humble throughout the experience. “This could have happened to anyone who played Jacob,” he said. “It’s Twilight. It’s not me personally.” We beg to differ, Mr. Lautner, we beg to differ.
